personally, I don't know how many games require planning and strategy, but I can think of a lot of games where doing so would yield some kind of benefit. It usually makes the game more fun, too, so I don't see why I wouldn't use planning and stratgey when possible. :|

So yeah, GTAV Online with my brother is like, the best thing ever. He randomly got $300 Million dollars from a hacker, so he's just been spending money on random things. We played for 3 straight hours today. In this session we:

  • Bought a Bike and rode it up a bunch of mountains, occasionally up near-vertical slopes and off cliffs (only to somehow survive)
  • I blew up the bike. In an effort to find a new car, I ran out into the middle of nowhere.
  • Got landed on by a random helicopter, which sparked a gang war. In the middle of nowhere.
  • Bought a fancy car to look for train tracks
  • Repeatedly got lost and crashed into things until the car was undriveable...at which point we found the train tracks.
  • Said train tracks were right next to a Dump/Race Track, so we bought several Giant Dump Trucks in an effort to see what would win: Dump Truck, or train?
  • After multiple tries and repeated assualts from police and player killers, we determined that the train wins every time.
  • Then we bought a jet ski, but it was at the harbor, which was very far away.
  • Then a random user came out of nowhere and chauffeured us all the way to the harbor, destroying every pole-like object in his wake.
  • He even got on the Jet Ski with us, so we decided to repay his kindness by taking the beaching the Jet Ski in a random area and seeing what he does.
  • What he did was follow us like a dog. He went where we went, jumped off bridges when we jumped, threw grenades when we accidentally threw grenades and almost killed ourselves. It was great. We had a real connection.
  • Then we bought a plane since we were right by the airport, in which case our friend shot us and stole our plane. It's like the story of old Yeller, if Yeller had the gun. And stole our plane.
  • We then bought another plane, which we used so we could parashoot onto a tall building and start randomly putting hits out on people, where no one could get us.
  • Then we got bored and jumped off the building.

And those are just the highlights. It was a very fun night.

A chance for multiple playable characters!?

I hope so, too. I can only imagine how Tingle would handle a mob of Moblins. =P

Or maybe we could grow up and stop comparing sexual or maternal apparatus in order to put down others for the sake of cheap and uninspired humor.

I agree. Lets stop with that, and compare culinary aptitude in order to put down others for the sake of cheap and uninspired humor instead.

I'm down with that.
My sponge cakes bring all the boys to the yard~
Damn right, they're better than yours~

Gooood It's really killing me that I can't get these 3D Classics. Super Hang-On, Space Harrier, and Shinobi III were among the few games I really wanted to see in 3D. =(

Anyways, been playing Ni no Kuni when I have a chance. Still in Al-Maroon or whatever its called, just one shot the trials with surprisingly little trouble...like, I was expecting it to be a bit of a roadblock, but it wasn't. Oh well, hopefully soon I'll get to see what happens afterwards.

Also occasionally playing GTAV with my bro from time to time. I can't believe I'm saying this, but it's actually really fun. We're not even using cheats, either, except the infinite lives cheat, which really shouldn't be a cheat. This isn't the NES for crying out loud...

You talk as if anyone saying they'll boycott the game because of the censorship really will. That tickles my funny bone. Some people just like to make noise.

*Shrug* I guess I have a bad habit of assuming people actually do what they say they're gonna do. =/
1297  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: December 17, 2013, 04:44:20 PM
"THIS IS EVIL CENSORSHIP! WE'RE NOT GOING TO BUY THE GAME BECAUSE ONE IRRELEVANT THING HAS BEEN CENSORED." I lol'd.

I went back to GameFAQs for the first time in years, having thought that was the actual title, and had renewed faith that maybe, just maybe, the community had gotten better (or at least became self-aware of their own stupidity).

Needless to say, my faith was crushed. =P

But really, The reasons for boycotting just keep getting dumber, to the point where I feel like there are just tons of people clamouring for a reason to not buy this game, despite all the hype and good word behind it, and I don't know why.

So One Piece 731:

Code:
Wow that was amazing. Oda is the master of the slow build. I'm not going to say that this development is a shock to me as I have been expecting Sabo to be the one to "inherit Ace's will" since Whitebeard's speech about how the will of D has been passed on through the generations. At least at one point I was expecting him to get the Falme-Flame fruit after we saw it as the prize, but I was expecting him to steal it when I was considering that possibility. Having him become Lucy was a great decision. I now look forward to him winning the tournament and proudly proclaiming as he is about to eat the fruit that he is Sabo D. Portgas, announcing that he has inherited Ace's will.

Sadly I don't really expect anyone to read that since very few people here keep up with the manga as far as I can tell.

I read the spoiler for 730 and it was something I honestly expected to happen at some point.

I should not have read that spoiler, though. Holy crap! Worst part is, that's too awesome for me to forget. :P

Space Dandy is the show I'm most looking forward to, yet even then I'm not expecting much more than a fun ride...much like the last few really good shows (The Unlimited, AoT, Kill La Kill). Not that I mind a good thrill-ride, of course...

Then there's Houzuki no Reitetsu, which is the first time in a while that I actually anticipated a comedy.

Then I'm looking forward to Sailor Moon and the new Precure...which I probably won't watch much of right away.

And Lastly I'm looking forward to the new Wooser shorts, which will probably be the only anime I consistantly follow...

I'll be keeping an eye on: Nobunaga the Fool, Nobunagun, Magical Warfare, Hamataro, Buddy Complex, and Taoru Hikuushi e no Koiuta - to see if any of them are any good, but I won't start them until I hear good things or see a good trailer...but I'm banking more on the former than the latter...

=======

EDIT: So I never mentioned here that I was watching Magi. I'm halfway through the first season, and I really like it. It's good stuff. Got some problems here and there, but otherwise I can't complain. Granted, I haven't read the manga yet, but hopefully that'll make this easier to enjoy.

There is a middle ground between casual and Hardcore, though. As Eusis said, that's usually referred to as the "mainstream" gamer.

Anyways, I'm tempted to go play a bunch of Ys games since this topic popped up. I'm kinda lost in the first game, though...
1301  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Member's Game of the Year - 2013 Edition! on: December 14, 2013, 04:14:23 PM
It was a pretty dry year for me (well, not in terms of releases, but in terms of games I actually played). I'll probably change my GOTY once Christmas comes and I play Ys Vita and LOZ:ALBW.

GOTY:

Etrian Odyssey IV - Never before have I seen a game so vastly improved that it pretty much made the rest of the series irrelevent. It helps that I played quite a bit of Etrian Odyssey I-III before playing IV, so I something fresh to compare.

Runner-Up:

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate/Pokemon X (Tie) - These were the games I spent the bulk of my game time with this year, with 50 and 100+ hours chocked up respectively. While they're both really good games, I finished neither of them and I doubt I'll be going back to them anytime soon.

Non-2013 GOTY:

Tales of Graces f - ...because it was the only game this year I had the urge to beat. It was actually kind of disappointing, but I don't have anything else to list here.

Biggest Surprise of the Year:

Demon's Souls/Secret of Mana - I'm not sure if the latter was this year, so this one is either/or, not a tie. Besically I used to hate these games before. Now I find them kinda fun. It's always a nice surprise when you come to like a game you didn't before, you know?

Honorable Mention:

Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction - I technically only finished it off this year, I think, so it only gets an honorable mention, but otherwise it was pretty fun.

Biggest Disappointment of the Year:

Tales of Xillia/SMT4/Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time (Triple Tie) - I had sooo much hype for these games, then I got them and barely played them at all. The latter one might edge out the other two, since it was sooo boring and the Clank puzzles sucked...These were series I really liked, but I guess I set the bar too high.

That said, I've had far worse disappointments than this. If that's the worst I could do, then I'm doing alright.

Game I definitely need to play more of:

Ni no Kuni - It's Xenoblade/Okami/Gravity Rush/A Bazillion Others all over again! It's so good, I'm afraid to play it, because then I'll have less greatness to play later! D=

Actually...why do I do that? It's not like they stopped making games or anything. <_<

Brb, I gotta go play some games.
1302  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ys (IV) Memories of Celceta on: December 13, 2013, 11:19:32 PM
Did not know that. That is very interesting. I was going to say it felt "Inspired" earlier, but I had no way of proving that. Nice. =D
1303  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ys (IV) Memories of Celceta on: December 13, 2013, 03:26:06 PM
Oh god also http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4udktU6rgMA even if I'm more familiar with the song from Jim Powers that ripped that off :3

Wait, Jim Power the Wrestler or Jim Power the game? Nevermind, the game....and honestly I can hear the similarities, but at the same time, it seems like it changed enough to be a completely different song.

And now I want to play Ys III. I don't even like Ys III, but damn do I like its music. Maybe I'll try the SNES version this time.
1304  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: December 13, 2013, 11:35:23 AM
Wait...I thought the 15th birthday of Tales was 3 years ago. =| Maybe by the time we get it, it'll be on the 20th anniversary...
1305  Media / General Games / Re: Tearaway on: December 11, 2013, 06:53:29 PM
I'm sure greatness takes time. I know I could use all the reviews I can get, since I'm still a little skeptical of the game, yet I'd very much would like a new 3D Platformer.
